Description Robert Walsh 2006-02-09 17:40:43 EST
If I hit shift-control-N to create a new gnome-terminal window, the resulting
shell has the same current working directory as the window I hit shift-control-N
in.  I'm not aware of any other terminal emulator that does this, but I haven't
looked very hard either.  It certainly doesn't happen on my Mac's Terminal
application.

This behavior seems profoundly wrong to me, but that's just a personal
preference.  What would be nice would be a mechanism to allow the newly-minted
terminal window to have the cwd set to $HOME.  I can see two ways of doing this:
either a profile option (probably under "Title and Command") or a different key
binding to handle the new behavior.

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

Thanks.

Sorry - I'm using a mac these days, so I've no way of verifying.  I will close
this out.
